Parish Finance Committee


The Parish Finance Committee was established following receipt of Guidance on the Duties, Roles and Responsibilities of such committees from the Diocese of Motherwell.

The Parish Finance Committee is a consultative body established to help and advise the Parish Priest in the administration of the goods of the parish.  The Committee has a role in a number of functions undertaken in the Parish, specifically in relation to:

  • the terms and conditions of lay employees
  • Health & Safety issues, including Security
  • due diligence in managing all parish assets
  • setting of an annual budget, monitoring income and expenditure against it; and
  • ensuring full and proper books of accounts are kept in accordance with Diocesan procedures.

The appointment of representatives of the Parish should be for three years, but a member may be re-appointed for a further 3 years if required.  The Committee will continue to hold office during a changeover of Parish Priest.  Within six months of his appointment, the new Parish Priest will appoint a new Committee, which may or may not contain members of the previous Committee.

The St Columbkille’s Parish Finance Committee met for the first time on 5th September 2016.  The Committee membership is:

  • Rev. Father P.A. Hennessy
  • Rev. Father B. Mournian
  • Rev. Deacon W. McMillan
  • Patricia Kennedy
  • Margaret McGrath (Chair)
  • Maureen McNamara
  • Paul McNeill
  • Monica Toner
